Interested parties: The establishment of an exclusive delivery contract usually involves two parties, the first being the parent organization, which must provide the exclusive service or product, also known as the company, and the second is the supplier or manufacturer, which is also known as the supplier. Validity dates: This part of the manufacturing and supply agreement sets the effective date of the contract and how long it will be legally binding. Where: This delivery contract is legally binding within the boundaries of the state, city or county where it was originally signed. 1 4 The manufacturer acknowledges that this order is not exclusive and that the company is free to designate other manufacturers in the producing country or in other countries to manufacture products on its behalf 2 ORDERS 2 1 Each product order must be made in writing and must contain a detailed specification allowing the manufacturer to conclude the order, including , numerous strategic alliances in temporary market relations S. This is done for three main reasons: first, many OEMs seem to lose sight of the end goal of their long-term agreements and are beginning to push CMs to save money. As a result, CMs are beginning to feel that their investments in learning how to produce and improve a specialized or unique product do not generate returns. It is understandable that, under this type of pressure, CMs paid for all the concerns they had, for example by selling them directly to OEM customers. This is a particularly dangerous development for the OEM if it cannot easily find another competent CM – one of the main reasons for forming a long-term partnership. In information technology, “clone” assemblers offer not only the best prices, but also greater opportunities for customization than companies that sell differentiated but solid products. Editors` customers choose components of different quality and are thus able to reach custom PCs at the desired prices. Cars will probably be assembled this way in the not too distant future: flexible manufacturing and the ever-decreasing amount of time and money it takes to ship a car by sea (three weeks and $500 to travel between two points of the world), argue for the ramp-up of CM cars in low-wage countries like China.
